People say to me, "You're so lucky. You had faith." But Stalin had faith. Hitler had faith. Would it be wonderful to believe in the virgin birth? I don't think so. Or that trees speak to you? Wouldn't that just mean you were mad? Faith's not valuable, not in itself. It's what you have faith in that matters.

I registered on IMDb simply so I could share my appreciation of this marvellous production.
The three main characters were performed to perfection by the brilliant cast. Thank you for bringing this wonderful play to our screens. Good in all things except perhaps the extent to which it felt more like a stage production than a televisual one.
Paddy Considine particularly was spellbinding as his performance ranged from a man teetering on the brink of self annihilation, convinced his slightest misstep would result in his end, to conflicted. Presented with the stark depiction of a safe life without passion or a passionate life doomed to disaster his inner turmoil was made clear to us, and we felt his turmoil, fear and excitement.
